A Few Anecdotes ef the lFamou
ChicagoDetecUre by an Old
Reporter
C3o All in Pinkerton is dead
remarked retired newsgatherer
of Detroit as he perused thecolumns
of a daily newspaper He was a
wonderful ma in some respeots
Were you aquainted with
him Very well at one time but I
havent seen him since 186sor was
it 1869 Im not certain as to the
year but I think it was 1868 I
remember the first time I met him
just as well as ifit were but yester
day It was at the time of the ex
tradition proceeding against Reno
and Anderson 17
And who were Reno and Ander =
son V interjeced the reporter
Frank Reno and Charles Ander
son were two members of a gang of
Indiana freebooters who made a
specialty of robbing express cars
The last jjb they did was to rob a
car down In Indiana when they
made a haul of 235000 It was a
big haul but it cost every one of
them his life I dont remember
whose road it was on but a
night express train stopped for
wood and water at a lumber station
I where there was nothing but a
sawimiii The engineer ana nres
man saw half a dozen men coming
toward the train from the mill and
supposed them to be a hunting
party The fireman was throwing
wood into his tender and the em
gineer was down upon the ground
oiling some of the bearings of his
locomotive when two of the sup
posed hunters leaped into the cab
while one of them coveted the en +
glnoer and fireman with revolver
in each hand the other reversed the
engine for an instant then
drew the throttle wide open
and before the trainmen could
realize what was up away went the
engine tender and the express cat
like a flash When the two men
leaped upon the eLgine the other
four sprang upon the express car
uncoupled it liom the rest of the
train and their treasure was secnre
They ran down the track about six
mile during which time they burst
in the car door seized the mes
senger and hurled him out He was
found alive tbe next day and was I
unconscious for weeks but subse
quently recovered sufficiently to
give evidence against the robbers
but was never able to work again
The Adams Express Company
employed Mr Pinkerton to bring
the scoundrels to justice and gave
him carte blanchs as to the lands
It was difficult task the old man
bad before him but he went about
It in hia dogged methodical way
that knew no failure The gang
had separated and ecattered but one
by one he located them until he
could place his hands upon every
one Then his hands closed with a
tenacious grip that never loosened
II At that time I was doing the
late criminal reporting for one of
the city dallies and one night the
night editor handed me a special
dispatch from Chicago stating that
it was there rumored that two of the
gang Drank Reno and Charles An
derson were hiding in Windsor
Hunting up an old detective I
showed him the dispatch and he
told me toput into my posfeet say I
nothing about it cross to Windsor
the next evening and I should have
a scoop Old Sam Port since dead
by hs own hand was then chief
Instable over there and by 11
oclock the next night he had Reno
and Anderson behind the bars and
I had a biu scoop aver the other
owl reporters i
The next day Super nendent of
Police Bergman telegraphed to tbe
express company that the men
were arrested and for the company
to send on its wltnessea The only
reply received was to the effect that
Pinkerton had bean given sole con
trol of the case You can bat that
this made the Detroit and Windsor
officers hoppingJmad for there was
big money ia the case and a few
days afterward two of Pinkerton
deteotives who were hanging
around the foot of Wood
ward avenue conferring with
two others in Windsor
who udder the guise of crooks
were watching Reno and Anderson
were ran in by the Detroit detec +
tive and locked np charged with be
Ing vagrants They were tried at
the police court convicted and pen
tenced to the house of correction
but they didnt remain there long
their fines being mysteriously paId
by a prominent attorney
Not loupe aterwards Reno an t I
Ar derson were arrested ucon 11
charge of assaulting with intent to
kill the conductor the train at
whom by the way they fired and
wounded as they made off with the
express car andon the morning fe
for the examination I crcned ove
the ferry NVvr b fore nor sine
have I Been Windsor so bubblIng
with excitement and suspense The
American House and most o ts
surroundings were thronged witb
people many of whom appear d to
be stranger Among tnem was
one who was noteworthy from his
enormous szs Ha was over sis
feet tall and fully bnlf aj broad He
was smoothly shaven and was
neatlydresEe in blue flan ntlja man
to attract attention anywhere
You are a reporter said ewitb
just the lead bit of inquiring tone
and he pointed at my note ock that
protruded from my oooket
1 Yes sii eaid
r Have you seen Allan Pinkerton
yel I I No i is ho here
1 Yes bea here < and if yon bavn1
already seen him you will before a
great while and hell fill you eo full
of lies that youll have to use Eome 01 I
them of but
Then tbe mammoth stranger
looked at me sharply fora moment
as if ° biiDg trie dp ahithih will
Would youliketoknow all about
Allan Pinkerton
ranacpeiedin the amrmativeand
At his request followed him up to hi3
room in the hotel There were two
strangers in the room but before introducing
troducing me bo threw himself into a
chair and said Im glad I met you
for I can give you Job of items before
this thing is over with And Im glad
you want to know all about old Pink
erton for were just the fellows who
wn tell yon My name is Sam
Flecker and Ive been a detective
more than twenty years This man
s Deteotive Eaton and this is i ex
Sheri Yates of Chicago He has
known Allan Pinkerton ever since he
was a boy and can tell you all about
him1
him1Tve known him more than thirty
years said Sir Yates and I dont
know nothing good of him Ill never
forget the first time I saw him Id
been elected Sheriff of Cook County
and one of the back townships had
Some time
given me a big majority
afterwards several of my friends there
came to me and asked me to appdint j
a fellow named Allan Pinkerton as
one of my deputies and I di I When
he showed up at court he had an old
coonskin cap on and he didnt know
enough to take it ofI when I opened
L Ln L 1 on
court naa to ten mm to tam nUll
All he ever learned about detective
work he learned from me daring that
term of court and that wasnt muoh
I can assure you He doesnt know
the first rudiments of the business
todayand never will know them
All this and much more came
I out in an interview the next morning
and as I wended my way down to
Sandwich at an early hour I con
gratulated myself upon having done a
commendable piece of reportorial
work That morning as I entered
he old frame hotel since replaced
with a briok onenear tho court house
the landlord told me that there was
would like
a man in the parlor who
to tee me and led the way thither
The introduction that followed wa
decidedly informal The landlord
limply opened the door for me to en
ter said There is the meal with
drew closed the doorand left me face
with a strange man of uncommon
appearance He was nearlysix feet
tall but eo broad in the shoulders and
round in the body that he looked
muohahorter Btrongrugged features
that peculiar highly colored complex
ion that indfoates a good liver short
crisp curly hair and beard dark
piercing eye that impressed me with
the opinion that he was looking into
rather than at me About the mouth
and eyes there wee that indescribable
something hat tells of a resolute
will a fixed purpose and a great de
termination Bach was my first im
pression and it grew stronger every
day of the three or four months that
T had the pleasure of his acquaint
I
ance
1
0He looked into me for perhaps
half a minute though it seemed
much longer and then in sharp inci
sive words and with a strong Sootoh
accent said
Bo youre the lad who tells the
people of Detroit that Allan Pinker
ton is a crooked manl
U I have not said anything of tbe
kindNo but you have inferred ai
mvnh Now me lad what do you
know about Allan Pinkerton
U Nothing and 1 havnt pretended
that 1 do I merely reported wba
others said about you I interviewed
I
taem
U d r
11 Yes and tUB interview was DO
of your own seeking One of my
men told me last night that he saw
you going up stairs with Sam Felker
Theyve imposed on you my lad and
youll kuon it some day Bat I didnt
have you to come in bore to quarrel
with you Youve done me an injus
tice and some day youll say BO
Allan Pinkerton is no crook but hee
the worst enemy theyve got in the
world and they know it Im here
to bring to justice tbe worst gang of
scoundrels in the country Its going
to be a bard fight but Ill win 1
take it youre an honest man and 1
want you to say nothing more about
Allan Pinkerton being a crook until
you find out whether he is or no
jCtJItfblDiCwould not and I
never regretted my promise A more
generouskindlyhearted man I never
met I had sec ops on tbe other
boys every day for toe next three
months and was in high feather at
the office in consequence
Hold onl Wbat was the out o + me
of the case
The men were extradioted and
taken to Indiana for trial but were
never tried The Prosecuting Attor
ney dadct dare to try them and the
farmers there dulut dare to sU as
jurymen were afraid for their lives
They impaneled a jury one dy but
the next morning not a man 01 tUB
twelve coula be found
And the complaint against the
gang was disavsaed I suppose
